The Food Bank of South Jersey The Food Bank of South Jersey operates on one simple premise: food should not be wasted when hungry people are in our midst. From this truth, we have built an effective food distribution program that annually links nearly 12 million pounds of food with more than 150 charitable food providers, such as food pantries, community kitchens and shelters in the four counties we serve: Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, and Salem. A member of the Feeding America network of national food banks, the Food Bank of South Jersey works alongside four other food banks in the state to develop immediate and effective solutions to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in our designated service areas.
